Why Does Food Taste Bad Right After Brushing Your Teeth? (and How to Avoid It)
If you've ever had something to eat or drink right after brushing your teeth, you know what we're talking about. Suddenly that sweet, tangy orange juice tastes... bitter and weird. Most other foods are a little off, too. Why is that?
It's all the fault of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). These chemicals are what make items like toothpaste, shampoo, and detergents foamy and easy to swish around. But they also mess with our taste buds by making things taste less sweet and more bitter than they normally would be.
So to avoid that unpleasant after-brushing taste, look for an SLS-free toothpaste... or just wait about 30 minutes.
Pre-School Teacher Puts Sleeping Pills in Kids’ Drinking Cups
A teacher at a California
59-year-old Debbie Gratz was caught adding an unknown substance to the drinks of 10 one- and two-year-old kids in her care by a co-worker at the Kiddie Academy
When she was confronted by the school’s administrators, Gratz admitted that for some time, she had been lacing the kids’ juice with an over-the-counter sleeping aid called Sominex.
She was immediately fired upon confessing and arrested roughly three days later.
The cops don’t know the quantity, but figured out she was breaking the pill into smaller pieces and putting it into the children’s sippy cups.
She was charged with two counts of child endangerment and is scheduled to appear in court later this month. (ABC News)
